An Introduction to growth-tumble and pressure agglomeration

Agglomeration is the size enlargement of particles by various mechanisms. This article gives a brief overview of two agglomeration methods Growth-tumble and pressure - that are commonly used with dry bulk solids.

In bulk solids handling and processing applications, an agglomerated material is often desirable because it contains little or no dust, flows freely, stores and handles well, and is easy to meter. The agglomerate also has a defined shape, with a high bulk density and low bulk volume, and its porosity and density can be controlled, within limits, to influence the material's solubility, reactivity, heat conductivity, and other properties. And when compared with fine particle products, the agglomerate often has better customer appeal and sales value.
